As with the transmission of any communicable disease like a cold or the flu, you may be exposed to COVID-19, also known as "Coronavirus,” at any time or in any place, including through participation in this Autism Society of Minnesota program. The Autism Society of Minnesota follows state and federal regulations and recommended universal personal protection and disinfection protocols to limit transmission of all diseases and will continue to do so.
Despite our careful attention to social distancing, disinfecting, hand washing, and requiring participants be healthy when attending classes or activities (absence of fever, chills, sore throat, etc.), there is still a chance that the participant could be exposed to an illness, including COVID-19,
during this program.
